Running Everything on the Cloud with Kelly Herrod

Kelly joins me today to discuss why the last two years have been helpful to Herrod Tech due to cloud computing. He describes being in a peer group among other business owners, the topics they discuss, and how they help each other. He explains how cloud computing saves money and time for both clients and owners. Kelly also describes the importance of working on the business and how to get to that stage.
